    Exclamation Girl Missing For Nearly A Year Found Locked in Hidden Room

    Wednesday, June 6, 2007


    HARTFORD, Connecticut (Reuters) - A teen-age Connecticut girl missing for nearly a year was found by police on Wednesday locked in a hidden room under the staircase of a home owned by a 41-year-old male known by her parents.

    Danielle Cramer, a 15-year-old girl missing since June 14, 2006, was found in a room blocked by a heavy dresser when police visited the house to serve a search warrant in the case, said West Harford police Capt. Lori Coppinger.

    "This poor child has been through a lot," Bloomfield Police Capt. Jeffrey Blatter told a news conference.

    It was unclear what the teen-ager, who was found scared and crying, had faced in captivity. "She was very quiet. She did not say much of anything," Coppinger told reporters.

    Adam Gault, 41, and Ann Murphy, 40, who lived in the single-family home, were arrested.

    Gault was charged with unlawful restraint, reckless endangerment and custodial interference. Murphy was charged with conspiracy and risk of injury charges.

    It was unclear how she arrived at the home. Police said she had in the past run away from her family.

    "She is a child from troubled circumstances and found what she believed to be a friend," said Blatter.

    Gault was known to the child's family through business acquaintances, while Murphy was living as Gault's common-law wife, added Blatter.

    The discovery came as Missouri police found the body of a missing 18-year-old girl whose disappearance made national news after surveillance tape showed her leaving a store on Saturday before being apparently forced into a car in the parking lot.

    Kelsey Smith's body was found in a wooded area after a search by more than 200 federal agents, police officers and students, Kansas City's KSHB-TV reported.

    Shades of Elizabeth Smart... No telling how many more missing girls presumed dead are actually out there somewhere held captive, for a while at least.

    Poor kiddo, I hope she's able to recover from this.

    Here's hoping those THINGS get the needle. Or even a twisted bedsheet.

    I'm glad she was at least found alive. I wonder why it took a year to get a search warrant on the house. Kudos to the cops who found her, though.

    I want for the perps the same thing I want for almost every perp I come across: Me, them, a stick, and impunity.

    No pepper spray? Guns? Bazookas?

    My sister was attacked & nearly raped near her dorm when she was in college. She bought a .357 Magnum and took it everyhere, including college. She said after that incident, she didn't give a shit about the gun ban on campus.

    A security guard was sitting in the dorm lobby reading a book when it happened.

    Not suggesting you break the law, but surely they'll let you carry SOMETHING, even if it's just pepper spray or a pocket knife.

    This was so weird to hear...
    the fact that they used to be acquaintances with her parents? ugh..
    i wonder also what efforts were made when she first disappeared due to her 'habitual' status...
    i know that here... 'habitual' changes how things are dealt with right off the bat and that is sort of yukky...

    i hope she can recover from all of this... will take a really strong person.

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion
